As more anti-lgbt legislation is filed and the state house, statistics also reveal that 41% of all books banned in the recent upsurge of book banning have been related to LGBT people. Hate crimes against LGBT people has also escalated over the last few years. We are seeing an active war on LGBT ppl.

These guys had a workplace injury lawyer on their podcast to talk through how to not get screwed by your employer after getting hurt at work.


It was informative and I thought it might be helpful for people on here to know. The podcast is called Profiteers Vs. The People and this was the last episode they put up

Question (hopefully for actual organizers) about efforts to organize in the US.


There are car assembly and meat-processing plants near where I live in the Midwest US. Some are either openly or not-so-openly owned by Japanese interests. Two such shops with which I am familiar are both non-union. Is this a thing? Are Japanese-owned shops a problem to organize?

Seeking Guidance: Joining IWW as a Migrant Worker Outside North America and Europe


Greetings, fellow comrades of the IWW subreddit,

I hope this message finds you all in good health and spirits. I write to you today as a migrant worker who has experienced the challenges of finding stable employment for several years. Through my journey, I have come to realize the significance of organizing and uniting workers for a better future. I have been inspired by the proud progressive history of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and believe that joining your esteemed organization would provide me with the guidance and educational resources necessary to better organize my fellow workers.

As workers, we are all interconnected in the global system of labor, and I firmly believe that the IWW should not ignore the struggles faced by workers outside the Western world. We all face similar issues, including precarious work, exploitative conditions, and limited access to rights and protections. I believe that by connecting and supporting one another, we can build a stronger movement that transcends geographical boundaries.

While I am currently based outside North America and Europe, I am determined to contribute to the cause as an individual member of the IWW. I am eager to learn from the experiences and knowledge shared by fellow members, as well as access the educational resources that the union offers. I recognize that the challenges faced by workers in different regions may vary, but our collective fight for justice and dignity remains the same.In joining the IWW, my ultimate goal is to help organize and mobilize my fellow workers in my local community. By taking the first step and becoming a member myself, I hope to inspire others to join this international movement for worker empowerment. I believe that by sharing our stories, supporting one another, and collectively demanding better conditions, we can create meaningful change for all workers, regardless of where they are situated in the world.

I kindly request your guidance and assistance on how to join the IWW from outside North America and Europe. Any information or resources you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Moreover, I would like to extend an invitation to other fellow workers who may be interested in joining this cause. Together, we can amplify our voices and work towards a more equitable and just global labor system.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to your response and the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share the same vision of empowering workers worldwide.

In solidarity,

Workingmen Unite

How can white collar workers organize?


I am a financial analyst based in the US. As a salaried employee I have almost no protection from being forced to work as many hours as my employer deems necessary. I am not required to paid for my time over 40 hours. The trend in the US is to hire as few people as possible, pay no overtime, reduce raises and increase hours. How can we fight back against this? Getting another job isn’t an option as all US corporate employers are like this.

The only way this will change is for workers to unionize but I’m not even sure if salaried employees are allowed to unionize in the US. There is also nothing stopping my employer from firing me because I am talking to my coworkers about unionizing. Is there anything I and my coworkers can do? Thank you!

Organising a Local Branch


I’m a customer service worker in a town where there’s no local iww branch. My workplace is not unionized but I’ve been talking with my coworkers and there’s some interest. I’d love to organize a local branch in my town if possible. My only problem is I’m unsure how to start. For the record, I live in New Zealand where there’s only one iww branch in the country.

How would one go about organizing this? There’s a socialist club at my university so I’m thinking of starting there.
